According to Las Palmas president Miguel Angel Ramirez, Liverpool are keeping an eye on PSG winger Jese Rodriguez.

Jese has endured a tough first season in France making only nine Ligue 1 appearances so far with the reigning French champions.

As reported by ESPN FC:

“Las Palmas president Miguel Angel Ramirez has said he is pessimistic about his club’s chances of signing Paris Saint-Germain’s Jese Rodriguez with Liverpool, AC Milan and Roma also reported to be keen.

The Las Palmas-born player could leave the French champions in January, five months after joining them from Real Madrid in a €25 million deal.

Las Provincia newspaper reported Ramirez as saying: “Jese Rodriguez is a great footballer. He wants to come to Las Palmas, but he is owned by PSG and earns a salary that is of his level — and that is very high.

“Liverpool, Milan and Roma want Jese and are ready to pay what he earns. We cannot afford that salary.

“With respect to other clubs, we are at a disadvantage and hence we have to wait. But we don’t want to create false expectations.””
